Whether I have worn the hat of architect, writer, editor, or visual artist, the work has always been based on communicating through language and image, connecting through story and ideas. What fascinates me, as both writer and artist, is how collectively we continue to build, reshape, or restore a narrative about the world and ourselves in it. Most telling, I think, is what we make of the fragments of the tale, how we rearrange truth|fact to satisfy need. In my art practice, I look at the ways we imagine ourselves in this incomplete story with the unknowable end, and then how we might question those perceptions. (Artist statements for some individual works can be found in my Notebook.)
